Brigg Tourist Information Centre is again handling bookings for people who want to enjoy interesting and FREE train rides round the large steelworks complex in Scunthorpe.
They take place on Saturdays and there are two to choose from - in loco-hauled carriages and aboard brake vans.
The volunteer-operated Appleby-Frodingham Railway Preservation Society runs these tours, which Brigg Blog has tried and highly recommends.
Although no charge is made, passengers are welcome to make donations.
The tours, which give excellent views of British Steel's extensive works, including the rolling mills, blast furnaces and steelmaking areas, start from a small platform adjoining Brigg Road, near the main works office block.
Free car parking is available nearby or you can take a Hornsby X4 or No 4 bus from Brigg to Scunthorpe and make the short walk along Brigg Road to the platform to join the train.
Visit the TIC on the ground floor of the Buttercross to book places in advance. Telephone 01652 657053.
Saturday brake van tours for 2019 will be running on January 26, February 23, March 30 and April 27. They operate from 11am to 3pm.
Saturday tours of the works in carriages will follow from May to late summer.

I have been in relationship with my boyfriend for 2 year now and we were planning to get married soon and all of a sudden he left me for another girl, i really love this guy and never can imagine my life without him. I further tried all my best to get him back but all my effort to get him back in my life did not work out. It was on this faithful day, i came across some comments on a website about this great spell caster called Chief Dr Lucky, so many persons claimed that he help them to renew their relationship and bring their ex back, i had to contact him because he was my last hope. I contacted him through his email and he assured me that in two days time my boyfriend is going to leave the other girl and come back to me and it was a very great surprise to see my boyfriend coming back to me after two days. I am so very happy today that he came back to me and i achieved this with the help of Chief Dr Lucky, and i advice if you need his help too Email: Chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or Whats App: +2348132777335
